a million children..

a million children..

A Poem by samuel austin

a million children..

struggling to breathe

while here i am

crying, over what i think i need

 

her screams!

his eyes..

drilling my heart as if a dream..

a million children

with the world to blame..

 

violence

spreading like it does

whos to stop it?

why not us?

why not us....

The world is in a sad state right now. If only enough people could realize it a difference could be made. Very well written. It struck deep.

I can see why you care for it so much. I love it, i think it shows what the world certainly is like today. People thinking of themselves when others across the world are dying of something that can be prevented. It has other meanings as well, I can see that. But overall Great job! Im adding it right now to my favorites in my library. Keep it up. Oh, nice guitar. i have an acoustic too :)
